Rebecca Tillet

As a member of Human Rights Campaign’s Board of Directors, Rebecca Tillet is one of the people who is going to get same-sex marriage legalized in New York. With the election approaching, a governor and Assembly that support marriage equality, and the knowledge that we only have to flip two seats in the Senate this fall, her goal is well within reach. “At every meeting I have tears of pride in my eyes at some point hearing about the incredible work being done by our staff and volunteers around the country,” says Tillet. “I feel honored to be involved in an organization that knows what it takes to win and knows how to mobilize our community to create real, lasting change.” –MF
